Just wanted to point out the abortion from 3/31/85. They did the Reprise first...stood around looking at eachother for a few minutes and couldnt't figure out what to do next and then went into Playin proper.

Personally I find your wording to be a bit misguided. I really enjoyed this show and the boys were hardly just standing around looking at each other! Coming out of the ending jam in the Wheel into Playin’ like that was actually pretty darn cool and spontaneous.

Well I guess that is why we have different opinions. I was pretty close to the stage and they were indeed looking around at eachother and no one had a clue what they were going to do next. The Reprise was good coming out of the Wheel but after the Reprise it just died for a few. The Day Tripper brought the house down and was a great moment.

I think Weir said somewhere that this was one of the worst shows the band played from his perspective.

I’ll grant you your point of view, as I was dancing far from the stage. Listening to it again for the third time today, it does seem like a smooth transition to me. Isn’t no one having a clue what they were going to do next a big part of the magic? As far as whatever Bobby’s feelings about a particular performance may have been, well I won’t touch that one!

But what I was mainly alluding to was the abortion reference, since that would imply that they gave up on the song, no? Anyhow, sorry to be a curmudgeon and agree about the Day Tripper. peace
